by Cutter Hicks, Sports 1140 KHTK

ESPN's Buster Olney broke the news Tuesday that the San Francisco Giants are open to trading starting right-handers Jeff Samardzija and Johnny Cueto come trade deadline on July 31.

The Giants are having their worst season since 1956 at 39-63, on-pace for a 100-loss season. Their are concerns with defense, offense and pitching, but the latter is the one that has dropped severely.

For a team that prided themselves for low ERAs  during and around the 2010 and '12 World Series runs, the team is looking at a combined 4.84 ERA. The last time a Giants starting pitcher earned the W was back on July 5.

Cueto, who holds a 6-7 record and 4.59 ERA, is currently on the DL with blisters. Samardzija is 4-11 with a 5.05 ERA.
